Instead of my Friday Musings, I thought I'd bring your attention to this incredible book that will surely comfort, bless, and encourage you! And who doesn't need that these days!!!
Are you in the midst of tough times? Perhaps you're unemployed, underemployed, or having financial difficulties that leave you feeling hopeless and helpless. Do you question whether God is aware of your circumstances? Are you wondering if there is a way out of your situation?
You will find encouragement and hope as you read each story. Like you, many of these writers have lost their income, savings, homes, and health insurance. Some have found themselves on public assistance while others faced homelessness. Their faith and trust in God was refined and strengthened as He provided a successful path through their tough times.
Each writer's personal story demonstrates the power of God who knows exactly what you are going through and who promises to care for those who put their faith and trust in Him.
God's Provision in Tough Times includes personal accounts by guest writers Alycia W. Morales, Beth K. Fortune, Carrie Fancett Pagels, Cecil Stokes, Dan Walsh, Deborah Raney, Dee Dee Parker, Eddie Jones, Eva Marie Everson, Felicia Bowen Bridges, James L. Rubart, Ramona Richards, Roger E. Bruner, Tamara D. Fickas, and Torry Martin.
Endorsements and Review for God's Provision in Tough Times!
Laine Lawson Craft Endorsement:
Everyone has a story. A story is universal. If you live in the United States, Africa, or anywhere else in the world, when faced with a personal tragedy or challenge, human hearts break the same. God can make all the difference in how we overcome such trials, and He can heal our hearts and hurts. Read these amazing stories of how life brought on some tough trials but faith in God gave way to victory. God’s Provision in Tough Times will certainly give you the courage and confidence that God will help you too!

“I feel honored to be a part of this powerful and encouraging book written by Cynthia Howerter and La-Tan Roland Murphy.” –Torry Martin, comedian, actor, and writer
LAURA FRANTZ: The title of this book couldn't be more fitting - this collection delivers 25 riveting, highly personal accounts of how God works extraordinarily in the lives of ordinary, needy people. Both faith building and encouraging, God's Provision in Tough Times is nearly impossible to put down and leaves you changed, challenged, and inspired in new ways.
MaryLu here: I asked Cynthia Howerter what the story was behind the book: how it got started and how it formed.
While at a writer’s conference, I spoke with a publisher about my family’s unemployment experiences. The publisher, Eddie Jones of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, asked me to prayerfully consider writing an unemployment anthology. Another writer overheard our conversation and said that God told her to tell me that the anthology’s name and topic was to be “God’s Provision.” I didn’t want to write an anthology because I was working on an historical fiction novel, but shortly after the conference, the Lord told me to put the novel aside and start the anthology. I asked God for a co-author and I heard Him speak La-Tan Roland Murphy’s name. Together, La-Tan and I asked God to tell us who the contributing writers should be and we heard the names of the 15 writers whose true stories about the darkest times of their lives appear in God’s Provision in Tough Times.
The book contains 25 candidly written stories about the ways in which God provided for each writer during their unemployment and financial difficulties. Readers who have never experienced unemployment tell us that the stories made them realize that if God can help the writers through horrendous hardships, He can and will help them, too. Right from the start, La-Tan and I prayed that God would use this book to help people who are struggling with problems and that He would be glorified.
Our 15 contributing writers are: James L. Rubart, Eva Marie Everson, Dan Walsh, Ramona Richards, Deborah Raney, Carrie Fancett Pagels, Cecil Stokes, Torry Martin, Felicia Bowen Bridges, Tamara D. Fickas, Beth K. Fortune, Dee Dee Parker, Roger E. Bruner, and Eddie Jones.
God’s Provision in Tough Times has been #1 and #2 in two Kindle categories on Amazon.com. It’s also available in paperback at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book stores.
